New Things: For your desk and kitchen!

Desk Things

My birthday feels like it was last year but seeing I never got the chance to show you a couple of pretty pieces I was offered from my Faves, I’m going to pop them into this latest New Things post to give you your own gift ideas. My friends know how much I love colour pops and practical things, so they mixed the two requirements and offered me some pretty cool new things…


My most generous gift from the girls was a beautiful bright turquoise leather purse from Furla which, after my budget plastic version fell apart, fully graduates me as a grown women. There’s nothing like a whiff of luxurious leather diffusing from your wallet as you scramble around for any hiding pennies at the end of the month. Thanks gals!

A sweet surprise on the side was this chic stationery set from the brand I wish I was always able to afford: Kate Spade. A shiny pot from Oliver Bonas sorted out my embarrassing Blue Peter style DIY pen holder that if been using for years. Again, I’m becoming a woman, see?

A gift to myself was the intricately drawn London map, the type of art where you can easily spend a good 10 minutes examining, plus is educational so double win. I got a few similar London themed prints from Great Little Place and popped them up in my boyfriends’ flat, take a look!

summer new things for the kitchen to cook and bake


Foodie Things

I’m no Gizzi Erkskine, nor Lili Vanilli but my half made-up recipes don’t usually turn out too bad. In fact, my last attempt turned out a treat thanks to Rachel Khoo’s cookie recipe! I’m looking forward to trying out some others in her latest, visually on point book.

You’re obviously going to need something to drink with those freshly baked treats, whether it be a matcha powder enhanced smoothie, a refreshing glass of fizzy fruitiness, a cute Elderbrook natural fruit cordial or perhaps a glass of sweet French wine. Make mine the latter!

Talking of healthy eating, I’ve been trying out wild rice (my housemate is obsessed.) Try a basmati blend for a good place to start, just pop in half a stock cube and you’ve got flavour right there!
